Miami is a sprawling city located in the southern region of Florida. It boasts 470,000 residents, about 17% of whom are seniors. The city is a member of the AARP Network of Age-Friendly States and Communities, meaning that its elected officials strive to ensure that it's a great place to live for people of all ages, including seniors. To that end, Miami has three specialized senior centers that provide nutrition programs and health screenings as well as county-funded senior care services and free meals. While the city's hot, humid summers may be a consideration for some seniors, its mild, snow-free winters may appeal to those who drive or rely on mobility aids.

Compared to the average Florida city, Miami is an expensive place to live. Its overall cost of living is about 37% more than the nationwide average and 26% higher than the statewide average, which may be a concern for seniors with limited incomes. However, the relatively high cost of living may be offset by the city's affordable assisted living options. On average, assisted living in Miami costs $3,250 per month, versus the statewide average of $3,500 and the national average of $4,051. Furthermore, Florida does not have a state income tax.
